On 26 and 27 June 2019, the Conservatoire botanique national des Pyrénées et de Midi-Pyrénées (CBNPMP) and the Observatoire pyrénéen du changement climatique (OPCC) are organising a seminar on the ecological restoration of high altitude sites with plants of local origin in Bagnères-de-Bigorre (France, Hautes-Pyrénées).
It is crucial for the OPCC to make the data it has collected on the impacts of climate change in the Pyrenees available to the general public. It raises awareness of future ecological and socio-economic issues in the cross-border region and promotes the implementation of various actions by sectorial and political actors to face these new challenges.

On the 25th of April 2019, the OPCC participated in a working group of experts on the theme of adapting the tourism sector to the new challenges posed by climate change in the Aragonese Pyrenees.
